Not exactly...on a model year '12, the factory warranty is 4 yrs/50k miles.
The complimentary maintenance program is :
The maintenance program on model year 2012 vehicles, covers the first four services at no charge: 7,500, 15,000, 22,500, and 30,000 miles.*
*3 years or up to 36,000 miles. per the Volvo site on '12s delivered AFTER Jan 1st....BUT could possibly be different because the in-service date falls within the period that Volvo had enhanced the 'Safe and Secure' program. Just a thought(could be worth some bucks down the road ) You might need to go up the food chain above the dealer to get a straight answer on that one.

I know this post is old, but here's some advice from an ex- Dealer. NEVER buy based on the amount of your monthly payment or how much "down Payment" the dealer is asking for. ALWAYS negotiate price of the vehicle without a trade-in and do research first so you'll know appx dealer invoice cost (Not the actual dealer cost, but a starting place, at least). You should be able to buy any new vehicle for no more than $1000 over invoice exclusive of any rebates or cash back and IN MOST CASES, you can do better than that.
Get the best price, then shop for the best finance rates at your bank, credit union, etc. IF the dealer can match that rate, let him finance, but NEVER buy any of the 'extras' offered by the dealer's finance dept. The only thing they offer that has any real value is an extended warranty and most people don't keep cars long enough to need it. If you decide you want it later, you can purchase this anytime before the original warranty expires.
If you have a trade-in, wait until you have that absolute 'best' purchase price to tell them. That way, you'll know exactly how much they are really giving for your trade. Failure to do this can result in confusing and misleading figures, and you may be better off selling the trade-in yourself.
And...Unless you're a very savvy car buyer- If the salesman pulls out a form with 4 squares on containing boxes for price, monthly payment, down payment and trade-in (or anything similar), walk away and find another dealer that will just talk price.
#471 of 484 Is Costco $750 below invoice deal good?
Jul 20, 2013 (12:37 am)
Volvo's running a deal for Costco members - $750 off 'employee pricing' until 7/31/13 (for 2013 models). Salesman at the dealer said this is $750 off invoice. Is this a good deal....and is it truly $750 off INVOICE?? Even so, can I do better with just hardballing down to a lower price (not something I'm good at, but...)? Also doesn't seem easy to find out what invoice prices are nowadays, compared to the early 2000's. Looking at a specific vehicle on a dealer lot.

I just used the Costco program yesterday and received invoice minus the $750 and minus the current $1000 factory to dealer incentive. I also received another $1000 off dur to being a current Volvo owner (loyalty program) So total was invoice less $2750. Volvo is also making the first 3 payments up to $1350 and then Costco gives you a $500 gift card, so the total savings off invoice was $4600.

Can you tell me what model the $1000 factory to dealer incentive was for?
I just bought an xc60 last weekend but was not told about this incentive.

It is a Factory to Dealer incentive, which means no one advertises it to the consumer. It is designed to be an incentive for the dealers to be more aggressive and willing to sell [XC60] for less. They count on you not knowing its existence.
If the deal is already done, chances are, they will not want to redo the paperwork, nor want to acknowledge that it does exist.
My biggest suggestion to you is, ask for it, but if they refuse, let them know that when you receive the Customer Satisfaction survey from Volvo, you will be forced to reflect that with a bad score (anything other then a 5 or Outstanding to Volvo is a failure; even a 4). The survey is either sent by email or by mail.
They may also put in a fake email address when they RDR the vehicle so that they receive it instead of you.
Keep in mind that all incentives are regional, your dealer may not have had it in the first place.

#477 of 484 Are either of these a good deal?
Aug 03, 2013 (9:10 pm)
I have the following offers from a Florida dealership. Are either one good deals? I think they are? Which is a better deal?
2012 Volvo XC60 3.2 FWD
CPO w/ safe and secure
car price: $30.5K
with taxes and fees: $33,250
2012 Volvo XC60 3.2 FWD
car price: $31K
with taxes and fees: $33,750
Florida seems to have some of the highest on average doc fees. I've tried to get them to come off the 600 doc fee, but they won't see to budge at this point.
I've done tons of research, but interested in live feedback.

Xc-60t6 with platinum and climate package caspian blue adds $650.
Invoice $45,293 but they started at $45,007 less the $1000 factory to dealer incentive and $1000 Volvo loyalty and the $750 Costco brought the price to $42,257. If you finance through Volvo they make the first three payments up to $1350 and you get a $500 Costco gift card when you do the Costco survey. So total cost is $40,437 plus tax and tags.
